Stiff Cider

After doing some reading on homebrewtalk.com I decided on trying a recipe for apple-cherry cider that sounds pretty amazing. (Thanks RICLARK!)

4G apple juice
1G cherry juice
1# light brown sugar
1# cane sugar
2 packets champagne yeast

I’ll just be doing a half batch, mainly because I only bought 2G of the apple juice at costco today and there’s no way in hell I’m going back again to buy more.  The whole trip is made better by the amex pimps at the entrance and the exit too. (Sure I’ll take a free bottle of water for a 20% interest credit card. That’s a great f’ing deal!)

Anyways, I’ll post some pics when it gets brewing tomorrow. A link to the original recipe is below.

Drunk in Dublin Stout

This is really tasty and has a fairly high ABV content of ~6.1%. It beats the hell out of Guinness, especially with the dry hopping — more to follow on that. :

Steeping grains:

8oz Crystal 80L malt
1# Black Barley malt
1# Flaked Barley (unmilled)

Extract:
6# Dark Dry Malt

Hops:
1oz Nugget hops at boil (1oz for dry hop)

Yeast:
Irish Ale Yeast (White Labs or equiv.) or
Safale S-04 dry yeast

Others:

1tsp Gypsum at boil
1tsp Irish Moss at 45 mins into boil
.75cup of bottling sugar at bottling time

We pretty much followed the recipe we got from the homebrew store on this one, except for the dry hopping that I highly recommend.

Beer specs:

5Gal batch size

OG: ~1.064 (unverified since we keep breaking hydrometers)

FG: ~1.018

ABV: ~6.1%

IBUs: ~60

Boil Time: 60 mins
